Palin drawing a bead on Barack Obama’s job

“President Palin.”

Kinda has a ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s try it out in other ways.

“Ladies and gentlemen, President Sarah Palin and the First Gentleman, Todd Palin ….”

“I, Sarah Palin, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States…. ”

“BEIJING — (AP) President Sarah Palin, emerging from closed-door talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, announced that an accord had been reached ….”

It’s not a farfetched thought, at least not to Palin herself. More and more, she sounds as if she’s ready to take the plunge.

And as she told Barbara Walters of ABC News the other night, if she runs, she believes that she’ll beat Barack Obama.

“I’m looking at the lay of the land now, and…trying to figure that out, if it’s a good thing for the country, for the discourse, for my family, if it’s a good thing.”

She gave a similar answer in a profile interview with the New York Times Sunday magazine, in which she was asked whether she was seriously considering a run.

“I am. I’m engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here.”

Palin went on to say that there weren’t meaningful differences in policy among the field of GOP hopefuls “but that in fact there’s more to the presidency than that” and that her decision would involve evaluating whether she could bring unique qualities to the table….

“I know that a hurdle I would have to cross, that some other potential candidates wouldn’t have to cross right out of the chute, is proving my record,” she says. “That’s the most frustrating thing for me — the warped and perverted description of my record and what I’ve accomplished over the last two decades. It’s been much more perplexing to me than where the lamestream media has wanted to go about my personal life. And other candidates haven’t faced these criticisms the way I have.”

The fact that Palin is stepping outside her comfort zone and talking with “lamestream media” outlets such as the New York Times and ABC News is itself an indication that she’s seriously thinking of taking the plunge. And you know, if the sometimes clunky Bristol Palin can make the finals of “Dancing With The Stars….”

But of course, Mamma Grizz isn’t alone in those thoughts. At this point in the political cycle, a number of people are contemplating a grab for the big brass ring.

Take, for example, Alvin Greene of South Carolina, fresh off his narrow, 34-point loss to Jim DeMint for U.S. Senate:

“I’m the next president,” Greene said, while sitting on a bench. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the greatest person ever. I was born to be president. I’m the man, I’m the greatest individual ever.”

President Greene.”

Ladies and gentlemen, the 45th president of the United States, Alvin Greene…”

O I believe she could realistically mount a challenge.
In 2008-2009 people said : “who’ vote for republicans”?
The american people believe anything and they are gullible to media. When it comes to
skill and style sarah palin has none politically. But shes knows how to put a show on for the media. Shes been writing books on t.v her familys getting on t.v and shes climbing in exposure faster than any other politician. When Sarah Palin says something everybody comes and runs to listen. Shes not afraid to use any means necessary to energize her base. Shes not afraid to fan flames of racism, hate and anger.
All shes needs to do is a few good interviews or work the media and she could easily jump 30 points in the polls. Since Obama was elected president it seems like america has mysteriously developed a ……. “Communication problem ” when ……..”people like” obama become president.
All Sarah Palin has to do is survive a redo of the couric interview, keep her sentences short. move towards the center-right and pretend shes to …..”take back america” plus pretend shes wants to include minorities in the tea party ….. and she’ll jump 30 points or more in a matter of months
Because some americans will go for anything rather than take…….. “people like”………Obama as president

I agree. And if *I* was a Republican MY worry would not be that she would be nominated but that the media circus around her would make it difficult to get a GOOD nominee. If it comes down to “anyone but Palin” – it could be nearly as bad as if she WAS nominated.

Personally, I think if she does run – it’s not going to be to get the nomination, but to be in a position to be a “king maker” by pulling off enough votes to give her the power to choose who WILL get it by her endorsement.

this is scary, if she becomes president it will be necessary to change the name of our country to the United States of Ignorance. beware of anyone that dislikes the media. the media isn’t perfect, but extremely necessary. people who hate the media would be perfectly ok with Fox News being the only media outlet much like TASS was for the Soviet Union, scary stuff folks.
and for Palin to complain about the media is ridiculous, she has gone out of her way to create the image that the media draws from. what happened to personal responsibility and accountability?
but it’s real scary that his could happen, because Obama will lose next time. the way he has been so demonized is just terrible. terrible to do that to anyone. especially when it’s mostly coming from people who call themselves Christians. Jesus wouldn’t need to demonize another person and doesn’t mean that Jesus wouldn’t point out legitimate faults in someone. but he wouldn’t need to take someone like Obama and try and turn him into a Hitler.
there will be a Republican President in 2012, let’s just hope that in 2016 when they screw things up so royally as they have done everytime since 1980 that our country isn’t so broken that it can’t be fixed by then and expecially that people start waking up and realizing what is happening in this country and start making good thoughtful decisions together for our future. if you care about the country your children are going to live in, you would start right now by ending all the hatefulness and the divisiveness. if we don’t get it by 2016 it’s over. war(on American soil this time), food shortages, extreme poverty all awaits us.

Palin needs to check with Al Gore on the necessity of carrying your own state when one runs for president. Based on the Alaska senate vote I would think Palin would not carry Alaska as a presidential candidate.

I have a question for you. Why is it always “the Democrats have to kick out the far left or whatever term you wish to use”, but the Republicans are never tasked with doing the same? How can you ask one party to do something you’re not willing to do yourself? Everytime the Democratic party moves towards the middle, the Republican party lurches right and moves the center. That’s bullsh*t, and the Democratic Party would be wise to call the GOP on the carpet for such crap.

Romney has the “dosage index” working for him. He probably would have beaten Obama, pulling in the independents and Blue Dog Dems.

” The concern is her ability to win the moderates and independents.”

That’ll never happen — she’ll never win over that group with her empty rhetoric. People will have a chance to see that the GOP message is once again that empty rhetoric and she will have nothing.

She can’t answer a question specifically, much like those who she supported. I saw a freshman Congresswoman elect on the news this morning — being asked specific poignant questions — she was dodging around like a jumping bean. The conservative Tea Partiers don’t see that — they see the evil liberal media asking mean questions like “what specific programs would you cut” or “if you could cut one thing tomorrow what would that be.”

Independants and moderates are smart — they know why they won’t answer those questions.

“I don’t understand what Palin has accomplished for anyone to think she would make a good president”

let do this again–”I don’t understand what Obama has accomplished for anyone to think he would make a good president”

Palin has become an entertainer. As long as the media puts her in the spot light, and comment blogs like this keep on discussing her, she’ll ride the wave all the way to the bank. Barbara Walters just enabled Palin to book another series of convention speeches where she is sure to double the amount of money in her bank account. The minute she starts trying to offer true solutions is the moment that dissolves her mystique. Mystique equates to money. The minute she declares a presidential candidacy will be the minute her money stops flowing in.

She knows exactly what she’s doing! I don’t care for her, but I’d do the same thing if I were in her shoes.

“I’m not a conspiracy theorist or anything, but what with that lost F-22 in Alsaka…you don’t think she’s trying to get up her own air force, do you?”

Considering they found it in lots of little pieces…………………….

“so what he was basically saying is that their opp research couldn’t find anything, so he wanted the media to do it for them.”

No, I don’t believe that’s what he was saying.

Pat Caddell takes the same position.

“You cannot talk your way out of being a quitter. That fact is carved in stone for the whole world to see.”

And the reason? She was a distraction for the people of Alaska — does she think as POTUS she wouldn’t be dealing with wolves with a steak tied around her neck?

“I don’t understand what Palin has accomplished for anyone to think she would make a good president.”

Such a profound statement. And yet I doubt he thinks the same could even be hinted at with respect to Barack Obama.
